"I love to have a birthday", Richard Overton told the Austin American-Statesman.

Born in Austin, Texas, in 1906, Overton is an Army veteran who served in the South Pacific from 1940-1945, including Guam and Iwo Jima, according to USA Today.

The street on that he resides - Richard Overton Avenue - was named in honor of the 111th birthday a year ago, according to FOX7.

Most days, you can find Overton sitting on his front porch, smoking his beloved cigars.

The Iraqi air force has carried out several air strikes since a year ago against ISIS positions in Syrian territory. The Iraqis said that Ithawi, who was living in Turkey, was a top aide to ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

Last month, he flew in a private jet to visit the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, where he received a private tour and met former Secretary of State Colin Powell.

Overton told KXAN TV, "No pain and no aches".

The veteran's family raised over $237,000 on a GoFundMe page meant to ensure that Overton can remain in his home, rather than being relocated to an assisted living facility.

When comedian Steve Harvey asked Overton in 2012 how he has lived so long, Overton said: "Just keep living, don't die".
